Experienced and knowledgable
Martin says, "I've taught in all year groups in primary schools. I have been, on a good day, with a favourable wind, judged as 'outstanding'. But, perhaps my greatest endorsement is from the children themselves who have enjoyed their lessons and thrived in class.
I love to see that moment of realisation in a child's eyes. I like to see them enjoy a tricky challenge. I enjoy watching them persevere through a situation they might previously have abandoned.
The methods, terminology and pedagogy of primary teaching are very different now to when most parents, including myself, were at school. It can be hard, sometimes, to understand our children's schoolwork - especially with the revolution in maths teaching. I am both a teacher and a parent - with a perspective on both those views.
I can offer one-to-one tuition for your child in maths, English, reading and phonics or grammar. Perhaps SATs are coming up and your child needs some revision, or maybe they're not as strong in one subject as the others. Perhaps its just a matter of confidence. I can give focused, personalised tuition to help your child be the best they can."
